The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Azealia Banks to Perform at Met Gala, Venus Williams Relaunches EleVen, and MTV Style Interviews Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’ Makeup Artist
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• Azealia Banks will charm the fashion glitterati with her musical stylings at next week’s Met Gala. The rapper took to Twitter to announce her exciting news: “I’ve been invited to Perform for PRADA next week in NYC! Gonna b so lush !! Let’s see what new songs I debut there!#metball2012″ How exciting for her! This chick’s really blowing up! (Azealia Banks Twitter)


Venus Williams has released the newest range for her tenniswear line, EleVen. The collection (which boasts both women’s and men’s pieces) has already been picked up by a few country clubs as well as online retailer Tennis Warehouse. Prices are reasonable, ranging from $17 to $48. (WWD)


• Jean and Jane Ford, twin cofounders of BeneFit cosmetics, are the subjects of a new movie, Glamouriety. The movie chronicles their journey from models to beauty moguls who still don’t seem to realize that black people come in more than one shade of brown. The film premiered at the TriBeCa film festival, and will be screened on the BeneFit website. Think you’ll watch? (Racked)


Julia Bluhm, a 13-year-old Seventeen magazine reader, is sick of seeing the same over-photoshopped, rail thin girls and women in the glossy. So, the strong-minded teen is taking matters into her own hands, and started a petition on, calling for Seventeen to put at least one unairbrushed spread in each issue. “I want to see regular girls that look like me in a magazine that’s supposed to be for me. For the sake of all the struggling girls all over America, who read Seventeen and think these fake images are what they should be, I’m stepping up. I know how hurtful these photoshopped images can be. I’m a teenage girl, and I don’t like what I see. None of us do. Will you join us by signing this petition and asking Seventeen to take a stand as well and commit to one unaltered photo spread a month?” It’s absolutely wonderful to see this young girl taking steps to help remedy a problem that is oh so pervasive within the fashion industry. The petition already has over 11,000 signatures out of the 15,000 she’s shooting for. Will you be signing? (Jezebel)


• Rumor has it that Angelea Preston, the disqualified would-have-been winner of America’s Next Top Model All-Stars, is four to five months pregnant. Some are speculating that this news might have something to do with her mysterious disqualification. (ONTD)


•MTV Style caught up with Kabuki, the makeup artist behind Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’ video, to discuss inspirations for the singer’s myriad looks. (MTV Style)

    Rihanna’s makeup artist did fine, her people however..

  2. Indigo says:

    People are beating a dead horse when crying about seeing females that look “like them” in magazines… Enough already. This girl,along with other girls,parents should have a long sit down talk with them. The sad and funny thing, they could put out pics of models without photoshop,and they will still look better than the majority of females complaining. Magazines are a form of entertainment.. Just like things are made up for TV and movies,the same applies to magazines. That’s why they sale. No one wants to see flaws, not even the ones crying about not seeing their flaws published. I wish ppl would get that through their heads.

    Isn’t Serena’s line a re-launch of basically the same line she had at Steve and Barry’s years ago with the same name?

  4. Troy M says:

    Loved Rihanna’s video !

  5. As courageous as this is, she picked the wrong publication. Maybe Teen Vogue would’ve been a better candidate, perhaps. Seventeen magazine always features models of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. That why I’ve always admired Seventeen even as a adult because growing up, they featured girls that resemble like me.

    unbrushed photos yes…but when will we realise that there are thin women too? “real women” can also be thin. its not 99% of women are thick or fat…come on. be far to the thinner/slimmer/petite women. ask for a mix. but don’t be biased

  8. Anonymous says:

    Is it just me or do Venus and Serena both look like they were really born boys….. On a positive note I love that little girls idea about 17 magazine!

  9. Chels says:

    Yes I agree! Benefit doesn’t have that many shades to choose from. I always skip right over their section at Sephora….

    “The movie chronicles their journey from models to beauty moguls who still don’t seem to realize that black people come in more than one shade of brown. ”

    only funny cause it’s true

  11. Frost says:

    I really enjoyed Benefit’s cream foundation until they discontinued my shade. In fact, they discontinued all of the shades after what I’d call ‘caramel’. -_-

    It’s always funny how companies will have no black shades but tons of white shades and I’m pretty sure black people come in more shades than white people. :P
